Dear Patients and Friends:
Because of demographic, business and personal changes, I have found it increasingly challenging to continue in solo practice. After Hurricane Michael, I became acutely aware of the need to re-assess my professional path. I am writing to inform you, that after 17 years in practice, I will be closing my practice on May 31, 2019. I will be able to serve your medical needs until that date.
It is very important that you make arrangements as soon as possible to select a new physician to make sure you receive uninterrupted medical care. Please contact your medical plan to obtain a list of physicians in the area who are eligible to become your physician. You can also contact the local medical society at 850-784-2090 for a list of physician names and phone numbers.
Once you have selected a new physician, you will need to complete an authorization to release your medical redocrds so that I can forward a copy of your records to your new physician. Unfortunately, your medical records cannot be released without a written authorization from you. For your convenience, ***Click Here to Download an Authorization Form*** for you to complete and return to the office once you have selected a new physician. Assuming I receive your completed authorization form prior to my last day of practice, there will not be a charge for copying your record. All authorization forms received after May 31, 2019 (or if you require more than one copy) will be subject to a reasonable copying and handling fee to cover the cost of duplication.
Thank you for having chosen me as your physician. It has been my pleasure and honor to serve you. I wish you continued health and wellness.
Geeta Khare, MD
